"It's not ideal to be injured and I've missed a couple of vital games but I'm back in training, I'm buzzing and I can't wait to get going again," he told the club's website after training yesterday.
"The injury was a blow. I've missed United, Fulham and the England games. It was a thigh strain that turned into a tear but I'm clear of it now and can't wait to get going again.
"I managed to score against Derby and that meant a lot but all of a sudden I was out injured. As I said, it wasn't ideal but I'm fighting fit now and raring to go.
"I've a lot of family who are either Tottenham or Arsenal fans and I know how much it means to them. When you watch the game on television you can see how much everyone is pumped up for it. I just hope to get some part of the game. I can't wait for it."
